Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 453886
preinstall scriptlet fails if not already using i810 in xorg.conf
Last modified: 2008-07-03 15:04:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Updating to xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.3.2-1.fc9.x86_64 in updates-testing fails to
install because the %pre script continually fails. It tries to replace 'i810'
with 'intel' in /etc/xorg.conf, but fails completely if it doesn't match.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Transaction Test Succeeded
sed: -e expression #1, char 41: invalid reference \1 on `s' command's RHS
error: %pre(xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.3.2-1.fc9.x86_64) scriptlet failed, exit status 1
error: install: %pre scriptlet failed (2), skipping xorg-x11-drv-i810-2.3.2-1.fc9
I am hit by this one too.
I guess it's caused by this change
* Tue May 27 2008 Adam Jackson <email@example.com> 2.2.1-25
- s/i810/intel/ in xorg.conf in %%pre so we can eventuall stop installing
the BC symlink.
which was useful for version prio 2.2.1-24 but it might cause the fail.
Release -2 fixes this issue. New version was successfully installed.
